Juan Carlos
Juan is 34 years old, single, and lives in the city of Cañete in the district of Imperial. He is a very kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who puts all of his effort into getting his family ahead. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and a need to work from a very young age, Juan was not able to pursue a professional degree. In his free time, he likes to play soccer with his friends and sometimes he makes a delicious ají de gallina chicken stew to share with his family.

Juan works as a chauffeur for a construction company in his city on his own initiative and with a lot of hard work and dedication . He works every day for around 10 hours and he believes it is going well because of his skill and because of his good customer service.

Juan is very thankful to Kiva's lenders, as it is thanks to the help they have offered that he will be able to pay for the construction of a new room in his parents' home because currently the living room and the kitchen are one room and there is only one bedroom for everyone. In doing this Juan hopes to offer his family better safety and wellbeing. He will keep working and applying himself to achieve his greatest dream of having his own home.
